Though she wouldn’t melt in it like vampires in other franchises, the Kate Beckinsale character Selene from the Underworld films isn’t a big fan of light. It’s a good thing for the rest of us that the same can’t be said of the real Beckinsale. As the actress is proving today, she looks amazing in just about any light.

Early on Monday, Kate Beckinsale posted a shot of herself to her official Instagram account. The photo shows her in platform boots, shorts, and a white top. She holds up two interesting looking objects which glow with a bright purple light. You can see the shot below.

The Underworld star has loads of sexy snaps on her Insta but few are quite as, well… purple. Speaking of Underworld, as recently as last year Kate Beckinsale has shown interest in returning to her signature action role but told Variety she doesn’t think an Underworld 6 is in the cards. The fact that the last film entry — 2016’s Underworld: Blood Wars — marked a franchise low as far as box office sales are concerned ($81.1 million, per Box Office Mojo) likely has something to do with the series’ stagnation.

At the same time, Kate Beckinsale did confess to hoping her character would get the chance to lock horns with a famous Marvel hero. She told Variety, “I really wanted them to do an UnderworldBlade mashup. What a duo that would be.” At the time she also seemed to unintentionally confirm that she had spoken to Marvel Studios about it. “I think they just wanted to reboot Blade as Blade so they didn’t go for it.” Beckinsale says she still knows exactly where Selene’s famous black leather pants are and confirmed she can still fit in them.

She may not be fighting vampires, vampire hunters, or werewolves any time soon, but that doesn’t mean Kate Beckinsale has left the action genre behind. In May, Deadline reported that Beckinsale will play blacklisted CIA Agent Avery Graves in Canary Black. When terrorists kidnap her husband, Graves betrays her own country to get the intel the kidnappers are demanding to keep her husband alive. Canary Black will be directed by Pierre Morel, who helmed the instant action classic Taken, from a script by Matthew Kennedy (Inheritance).

Kate Beckinsale has a number of exciting screen projects on the way, including Charlie Day‘s upcoming feature directorial debut. Formerly titled El Tonto, Day has given the film a new, unrevealed name as well as embarked on extensive reshoots. When it finally bows, the movie will feature an impressive ensemble cast including Day playing himself, Beckinsale, John Malkovich, Jason Sudeikis, Katherine McNamara, Adrien Brody, Ray Liotta, Edie Falcon, and more.

Expected out some time this year is Prisoner’s Daughter, in which Kate Beckinsale will take on the role of the daughter of a newly released convict, played by Brian Cox (Succession). In spite of all the action fare Beckinsale is known for, ironically it was while filming the upcoming drama that her back gave out, forcing her to experience pain that she described as, “worse than having a baby bad, like bad.”
